Can I help?

0:00:320:00:35

I'm David. Your new neighbour.

0:00:350:00:38

I'm here to see Miss Parsons.

0:00:460:00:48

-What's the name?

-Ian Rickman.

0:00:480:00:51

Yes, THAT Ian Rickman.

0:00:510:00:54

-Do you have an appointment?

-Yes. Just tell her I'm here.

0:00:540:00:57

Thank you for this. Not much of a welcome to the neighbourhood.

0:00:570:01:03

It's fine. We're nearly done.

0:01:030:01:05

I'll be late for surgery. I'm a nurse.

0:01:050:01:09

Better make sure you wash your hands before you treat any patients!

0:01:090:01:12

I'll be washing them in bleach after this lot.

0:01:120:01:16

-Where do you work? I'm new to the area.

-I work at the Mill Health Centre.

0:01:160:01:21

I ought to get myself registered. I might look you up.

0:01:210:01:25

-Where have you moved from?

-Preston.

-Nice.

0:01:250:01:29

Shame your boyfriend wasn't here to help you.

0:01:290:01:32

My fiance... He's going to be back this evening.

0:01:320:01:36

You're getting married? Very nice. Who's the lucky man?

0:01:360:01:40

Jimmi. He's a doctor. He's Welsh. He's lovely.

0:01:400:01:47

I better be going and cleaning up. Got patients waiting. I owe you one.

0:01:490:01:55

I'm sure you'll find a way to make it up to me.

0:01:560:01:58

PHONE BLEEPS

0:02:040:02:06

Mrs Chapman.

0:02:120:02:15

Thank you for your help. With the Mill's support, the event will be a great success.

0:02:150:02:19

I'm happy to help. It's a good cause.

0:02:190:02:21

If any of your staff want to volunteer or have questions,

0:02:210:02:25

-do feel free to give them my number.

-Thanks.

-Goodbye.

-Bye.

0:02:250:02:29

-Julia?

-Mm-hm.

-Ian Rickman, what does he want?

0:02:290:02:34

He's organising a charity event. Lots of local surgeries are getting involved.

0:02:340:02:38

I'll send a memo round, see if any of our lot want to volunteer on the night.

0:02:380:02:41

-Do you know who he is?

-Yes.

-And you trust him?

0:02:410:02:46

He's asked me to be on the finance committee, so he won't get anywhere near the money we raise.

0:02:460:02:50

-What's the event in aid of?

-Early-onset Alzheimer's.

0:02:500:02:54

You've got to stop him.

0:02:550:02:57

-Lauren, it'll be fine.

-No, it won't!

0:02:570:03:01

Look. If you want to talk about this later, fine.

0:03:010:03:04

But this isn't the time or the place.

0:03:040:03:06

-Julia...

-You shouldn't leave the desk unattended.

0:03:130:03:18

Lauren!

0:03:180:03:20

-He can't be allowed to do this.

-He's just trying to help some charity.

0:03:200:03:25

He's a conman. He may have got away with it, but everyone knows what he is.

0:03:250:03:28

I'm not judging somebody because of tabloid rumours.

0:03:280:03:31

Vulnerable people need that money. What if he steals it? He's clever. He'll find a way.

0:03:310:03:36

What is the matter with you? I've never seen you like this before.

0:03:360:03:39

My grandmother suffered from it. Alzheimer's. She was only 55.

0:03:420:03:48

It destroyed my grandfather's life as well. Please, Julia.

0:03:480:03:53

If we helped this man and it went wrong, I couldn't bear it.

0:03:530:04:00

I'm very sorry. I didn't know.

0:04:000:04:03

This project is going to go ahead whether we like it or not.

0:04:030:04:07

Wouldn't it be better if we were involved?

0:04:070:04:09

-That way, we could keep an eye on things.

-Let me help then.

0:04:090:04:12

-Hmm?

-I want to volunteer. I'll be your assistant.

0:04:120:04:16

I'll have to think about that.

0:04:160:04:19

I'll get back to work. Sorry. It's just something I really care about.

0:04:190:04:25

PHONE RINGS

0:04:320:04:34

Hello...

0:04:350:04:38

OK, if it's just a quick vaccination. Send him in.

0:04:400:04:44

-KNOCK ON DOOR

-Come in.

0:04:480:04:50

Hi, it's Lauren Porter from the Mill.

0:05:010:05:03

Didn't expect to see you so soon.

0:05:120:05:15

It was meeting you that reminded me...

0:05:150:05:17

I'm about to go abroad and I forgot to get my vaccinations done.

0:05:170:05:21

-Where are you going?

-Africa.

0:05:210:05:25

-Big country.

-Madagascar.

0:05:250:05:27

-Ah. I loved the film.

-Huh?

0:05:270:05:31

You'll need to have Typhoid, Hepatitis A,

0:05:310:05:35

and speak to a doctor about anti-malarials. When are you going?

0:05:350:05:39

-Once I've settled into the new house.

-So you've not got anything booked?

0:05:390:05:42

No. I'm a spur of the moment man.

0:05:420:05:46

The hepatitis takes a couple of weeks before it can take effect.

0:05:460:05:49

I guess I'll just have to hang around for a fortnight then.

0:05:510:05:54

Which is good. Gives me a chance to get to know my new neighbours better.

0:05:540:05:58

-Julia sent me.

-I see.

0:06:040:06:07

I'm going to be her assistant. I was in the area, so thought I'd come and introduce myself.

0:06:070:06:12

-I'm Lauren.

-Ian.

0:06:120:06:15

-I know.

-You'd better come inside.

0:06:150:06:18

I think we got off on the wrong foot earlier. I'm sorry if I was short with you.

0:06:280:06:32

It can get tiring having strangers mistrust me on sight.

0:06:320:06:35

Can we start over? I don't blame you for being suspicious of me.

0:06:350:06:40

For some reason, it's never the decent people who have protesters outside their house.

0:06:400:06:44

That man outside is an unfortunate consequence of events beyond my control.

0:06:440:06:49

-Oh, I see. What's his name?

-Eh?

0:06:490:06:53

The man outside. What's his name?

0:06:530:06:55

There's several of them. They posted my address on the internet.

0:06:550:07:00

-They take it in turns, sitting there and trying to embarrass me.

-How are they doing?

-Pretty well.

0:07:000:07:06

Look, this gala is very important to me.

0:07:060:07:08

I don't want any bad feeling amongst the people helping out.

0:07:080:07:12

So, please, just give me a chance. Can you do that?

0:07:120:07:15

-I'll try.

-In which case, I'm glad to welcome you to the team.

0:07:150:07:19

-Perhaps you'd like to meet my wife while you're here?

-Is she involved as well?

0:07:190:07:23

Surely Julia explained?

0:07:230:07:25

I'll introduce you.

0:07:270:07:29

Maybe then, you'll understand why this project is so important to me.

0:07:290:07:33

Don't worry. I've been accused of many things in the press, but being a serial killer isn't one of them.

0:07:380:07:44

Thanks for fitting me in at such short notice.

0:07:460:07:50

I was late, so I needed to make up the time.

0:07:500:07:53

Sorry, is this your lunch break? Let me buy you a sandwich.

0:07:530:07:57

-No, thank you.

-As a thank you for staying behind.

0:07:570:08:01

I've got to get on. You can pull your sleeve down.

0:08:010:08:05

-Hey, how is it working with your fiance?

-Sorry?

0:08:050:08:10

You said he was a doctor. Presumably, he works here an' all?

0:08:100:08:13

No, he doesn't. He works somewhere else. Somewhere far from here.

0:08:130:08:17

But you still live together. That's nice.

0:08:170:08:20

I've got to get on.

0:08:220:08:24

OK. Well, I will catch you later.

0:08:240:08:27

You've got a visitor.

0:08:370:08:39

This is Lauren.

0:08:410:08:44

-It's best to try and behave normally.

-Hello, Heather.

0:08:440:08:48

It's all right, love.

0:08:500:08:53

Some days are better than others.

0:08:530:08:56

Lauren wants to help out with the show.

0:08:560:08:58

Do you remember me telling you about it? The show in the theatre with singers and dancers,

0:08:580:09:02

-like you used to love.

-Be quiet!

0:09:020:09:05

We'll go in the other room. It'll be easier to talk in there.

0:09:120:09:16

-Does she remember you?

-Some of the time.

0:09:190:09:21

The shame is that it's better when she can't.

0:09:210:09:24

I don't want her remembering her husband as a man hounded by the press,

0:09:240:09:27

spat at by strangers in the street.

0:09:270:09:29

Her forgetting, in a terrible way, it's a blessing.

0:09:290:09:33

For you, or for her?

0:09:330:09:36

Heather is my purpose in life now. She's all that matters.

0:09:360:09:41

You look great.

0:10:090:10:13

Do you buy all your mistresses flowers?

0:10:130:10:16

To us.

0:10:440:10:46

This feels wrong.

0:10:470:10:49

You could always leave.

0:10:510:10:53

I know it's too late for Heather, but maybe one day in the future,

0:10:560:11:00

other couples won't have to go through this. That's why I'm doing it.

0:11:000:11:04

I want to believe you.

0:11:040:11:06

My grandmother suffered from Alzheimer's.

0:11:060:11:09

-She was young. It was awful.

-I'm very sorry to hear that.

0:11:090:11:13

If I thought the money was going to anyone other than to the people that need it...

0:11:130:11:17

That won't happen. I'm just organising the show. Calling in favours. Getting the ball rolling.

0:11:170:11:22

Every penny of the money raised is going to go towards research

0:11:220:11:26

and care for people who don't have the resources that Heather and I do.

0:11:260:11:31

I've seen that look so many times before.

0:11:310:11:33

Distrust. And all because of something I didn't do.

0:11:330:11:37

I just need people to give me a chance.

0:11:370:11:39

-You've nothing to hide?

-No.

0:11:390:11:42

-So prove it.

-How?

0:11:420:11:46

-That's the maddest thing I've ever heard.

-I mean it!

0:11:460:11:50

Compulsory meditation in schools?

0:11:500:11:52

Young people don't know how to live in the moment any more.

0:11:520:11:55

They want life at a hundred miles an hour.

0:11:550:11:58

They bring energy drinks to school in their lunchbox and then their parents come to me

0:11:580:12:03

and insist there's a medical reason why they can't concentrate.

0:12:030:12:06

I just think that if everyone was more mindful...

0:12:060:12:09

-There'd be no more wars and everyone would be happy all the time?

-Yes!

0:12:090:12:13

No. I don't know. I just think it's important.

0:12:130:12:16

I'm the full new-age package. The door's over there.

0:12:180:12:22

I'm not going anywhere. I love your spirit. You're so vibrant. Alive.

0:12:220:12:27

I guess your wife's more conventional then?

0:12:270:12:29

-Let's not talk about her.

-I don't see how we can talk about anything else.

0:12:330:12:38

Everything I say, you'll be comparing us.

0:12:380:12:41

Am I sexier, funnier, more intelligent?

0:12:410:12:44

-I just wanted to have lunch with you.

-I'm right though, aren't I?

0:12:440:12:47

This is not some cheap affair.

0:12:490:12:53

I've told you, things are finished between Fiona and I.

0:12:540:12:59

I know this game. I understand the rules.

0:12:590:13:04

Maybe I don't want to play.

0:13:040:13:06

This is not some game I'm playing with you.

0:13:080:13:11

I just need a chance to prove that.

0:13:110:13:14

-This is Martin Richards.

-Hello, Martin.

0:13:190:13:23

Would you like a drink?

0:13:250:13:26

Five months, I've been sat outside your house.

0:13:350:13:39

This is the first time you've acknowledged I exist.

0:13:390:13:42

Mr Rickman is organising a charity concert.

0:13:420:13:46

-Why am I here?

-I want to believe that he's doing it for the best of reasons,

0:13:470:13:52

that everything I've read about him is wrong.

0:13:520:13:54

I want to see him look you in the eye and tell you that what happened wasn't his fault.

0:13:540:14:00

That it was all a terrible mistake and he's trying to make up for it.

0:14:000:14:06

For our own reasons, that's something we both need to hear.

0:14:060:14:11

I didn't know what was going on with my executives.

0:14:130:14:17

I wasn't aware that the structure of my company was unsustainable.

0:14:170:14:20

I wasn't involved in the running of the investment department and had no knowledge

0:14:200:14:24

of the illegal activities some staff were engaged in.

0:14:240:14:27

I've heard that speech before. You said it in court.

0:14:270:14:32

-That's not what I want to hear.

-What do you want?

0:14:320:14:35

-I want you to say sorry.

-I won't admit responsibility for something I didn't do.

0:14:350:14:39

I had a wife. A beautiful wife.

0:14:390:14:44

We invested all our savings in your company.

0:14:440:14:48

Every single penny we'd worked to save, gone overnight.

0:14:480:14:52

When I lost my job, I told Claire we'd be all right. We had savings.

0:14:540:14:57

Then we got the letters from the receivers. And now Claire's gone.

0:14:570:15:03

You took everything that mattered to me, and somehow, you still live in this big house

0:15:030:15:10

and you don't even have the decency to say sorry.

0:15:100:15:14

What's going on? Who are you? What are you doing in my house?!

0:15:140:15:18

It's all right, love. It's just Lauren. You remember Lauren? You met her in the other room.

0:15:180:15:23

Who are you? What are you doing in my house?

0:15:230:15:25

He's a...friend. Aren't you?

0:15:250:15:28

-Friend? Whose friend? He's not my friend.

-Why don't we go back in the other room?

0:15:280:15:32

-Who is he? What's he doing in my house?

-It's OK, it's all OK.

0:15:320:15:37

-Thanks. My turn.

-No, I insist.

0:15:440:15:48

-What?

-Use cash.

0:15:510:15:54

No paper trail for your wife to find.

0:15:550:15:58

I knew it was a waste of time.

0:16:030:16:06

-So why do you sit outside here every day?

-I've nowhere else to be.

0:16:060:16:11

She's settled.

0:16:190:16:22

If you're still talking to me.

0:16:220:16:26

-Can I use your loo?

-Of course.

0:16:260:16:29

Very kind of you to walk me home.

0:17:070:17:10

Nobody feels safe walking home in the middle of the afternoon(!)

0:17:100:17:14

I should warn you, I haven't got any coffee in the house, so I can't offer you any.

0:17:140:17:19

-Caffeine's bad for you.

-Shame. You know, I could murder a cup of camomile.

0:17:190:17:25

Find anything incriminating? Where did you look? My study?

0:17:340:17:39

-What did you think you'd find in five minutes?

-You're a businessman.

0:17:390:17:43

Surely, you know the importance of seizing the opportunity. What do you keep in the safe?

0:17:430:17:48

-My, you were thorough.

-What do you keep in it?

0:17:480:17:51

-Private things.

-Like?

0:17:510:17:53

Owning a safe is not a crime.

0:17:530:17:55

It's just something that people with a lot of money tend to have.

0:17:550:17:58

I want the Mill to help get this project off the ground. I've bent over backwards to prove myself.

0:17:580:18:03

I think I've been exceptionally tolerant. And how do you repay me?

0:18:030:18:06

You try to humiliate me and you sneak around my house like a thief!

0:18:060:18:10

-This illness is something I feel very passionate about.

-Then we do have something in common.

0:18:100:18:15

So I forgive you for nosing where you shouldn't.

0:18:170:18:19

I never said sorry.

0:18:190:18:22

-'Get away from me!

-Don't go any further.

0:18:230:18:26

-'It's not safe!

-Let me go!'

0:18:260:18:29

-Get away from me!

-Don't go any further! It's not safe!

0:18:290:18:34

-Don't touch me!

-Thank you.

0:18:340:18:37

Why did you let her wander out alone? It's not safe!

0:18:370:18:39

-She must have figured out the gates.

-What would have happened if I hadn't been here?

-This way, love.

0:18:390:18:44

I help you, now you walk away from me again!

0:18:440:18:47

After all the respect you showed for my family, I should have left her to wander off into the road!

0:18:470:18:52

Be quiet! Where's your humanity? This woman is ill.

0:18:520:18:55

Whatever he did, it's not her fault!

0:18:550:18:58

I didn't think you'd actually drink the tea.

0:19:050:19:08

-Nice house.

-Surprised you haven't asked for a tour of the bedrooms yet.

-Stop it.

0:19:110:19:16

Whoa!

0:19:200:19:22

-It's what we're here for, isn't it?

-I'm here for you.

0:19:240:19:28

I know how this works.

0:19:280:19:31

Not with me. This time, it'll be different.

0:19:310:19:34

-How are you finding it?

-Our affair?

0:19:370:19:41

-No! Our book.

-Oh. Everyone's raving about it,

0:19:410:19:46

but personally, I can't see what all the fuss is about.

0:19:460:19:49

I'm trying to figure out if you're a very fast or a very slow reader.

0:19:520:19:57

-What do you mean?

-Your bookmark is right near the beginning.

0:19:570:20:02

Either you read a page a day, or you've read it

0:20:020:20:05

and gone back to the beginning.

0:20:050:20:07

I was thinking I might find something I missed first time around.

0:20:070:20:12

-Ah. Hidden depths?

-Yes.

0:20:120:20:17

Figured you'd need a drink.

0:20:360:20:38

-It's all right.

-She's watching TV again.

0:20:450:20:47

Will it always be this hard?

0:20:490:20:51

Thank you. Outside, just now...

0:20:530:20:56

That's the first time someone's stood up for me in a long time.

0:20:560:21:00

Your wife shouldn't suffer because of your mistakes.

0:21:000:21:04

Sometimes, I wonder how much longer we can live like this.

0:21:040:21:07

-I don't think you have much choice.

-There's always a choice.

0:21:070:21:11

What do you mean?

0:21:110:21:14

You can trust me.

0:21:160:21:19

There's a cocktail of drugs in the safe.

0:21:190:21:22

I paid someone to bring them over from Switzerland.

0:21:220:21:25

They're illegal here, but it's what they use in the clinics there.

0:21:250:21:29

-To end things?

-Yes. Painlessly.

0:21:290:21:32

There's enough for two.

0:21:340:21:35

People cope with illness. They find a way.

0:21:350:21:40

Why should we spend the rest of our lives suffering?

0:21:400:21:45

I know you're hurting because of what's happened to Heather,

0:21:450:21:48

but that doesn't excuse you from the mistakes you've made.

0:21:480:21:51

What's happened to her is terrible, but it's not your fault.

0:21:510:21:55

The man sitting outside, alone in the street...he is, isn't he?

0:21:550:22:01

Where are you going?

0:22:080:22:10

Sorry.

0:22:260:22:28

I'm sorry for what I did to you.

0:22:330:22:35

"Drake looked between the amulet and the girl he loved,

0:23:060:23:10

"knowing he could save only one.

0:23:100:23:13

-"There was no choice. It had to be...the scarlet amulet."

-Yes!

0:23:140:23:19

This is the first lesson they teach you in archaeology school.

0:23:190:23:23

Go on.

0:23:260:23:27

I said sorry to him.

0:23:320:23:35

Are you OK?

0:23:380:23:42

SIRENS WAIL He phoned the police!

0:23:420:23:45

I did the decent thing and he betrayed me!

0:23:480:23:51

-He can't prove what I said to him.

-How does it feel?

-What?

0:23:510:23:56

Getting a taste of your own medicine.

0:23:560:23:59

-I tried to help him!

-People trusted you and you lied to them. You cheated them.

0:23:590:24:05

I don't mind so much about losing my savings.

0:24:050:24:08

Well...no, I do, but it's not what really stings.

0:24:080:24:15

It's that you fooled me, and nobody does that.

0:24:150:24:20

-YOU phoned the police?

-Your wife's going to get the care she deserves from now on.

0:24:200:24:26

-What do you mean?

-You tore the heart out of so many families.

0:24:260:24:33

Now, I'm going to take something important from you. How do you think the police will react

0:24:330:24:38

when they find an illegal cocktail of drugs in your safe?

0:24:380:24:41

Won't think you're the ideal carer now, will they?

0:24:410:24:45

They can't be too careful with vulnerable patients.

0:24:450:24:48

Need to make sure they're safe.

0:24:480:24:51

You took the chain off the door. You opened the gates.

0:24:510:24:55

She could have been killed! BANG ON DOOR

0:24:550:24:57

-'It's the police. Open up!'

-More proof that you're not capable of caring for her.

0:24:570:25:01

-I trusted you.

-That was a mistake. How does it feel? The humiliation.

0:25:010:25:08

Someone pulling the wool over your eyes.

0:25:080:25:11

-BANGING ON DOOR

-'Mr Rickman? We know you're there.'

0:25:110:25:16

He's in the study, destroying the evidence.

0:25:190:25:21

Shall we go upstairs?

0:25:320:25:34

Lauren, thought you might like to know that we won't be helping out Ian Rickman after all.

0:25:490:25:54

-What do you mean?

-A friend of mine at the police station called. He's been arrested again.

0:25:540:25:59

-Your instincts were right.

-Some people, you just can't trust.

0:25:590:26:02

Just as well you didn't have to spend any time with him.

0:26:020:26:05

-I don't know how you'd have felt.

-What?

-Because of your grandmother.

-Oh. Yes.

0:26:050:26:11

We must stop meeting like this.

0:26:320:26:34

I just need to ask you a few questions about the neighbourhood.

0:26:360:26:40

What's wrong? Aren't we friends?

0:26:400:26:43

Do you need a hand with that? We need to talk.

0:26:450:26:49

SHE SCREAMS

0:26:490:26:54

Cherry?

0:27:000:27:03

Are you in?
